Our Mission Statement:

We are a unique, professional, caring team, confident in our ability to maximise each child’s full potential in all aspects of their development. The setting strives to create provision of a very high quality within a child-centred, happy, secure and stimulating environment which will promote the learning process for all. The complete individual needs of each child are nurtured in an atmosphere of positive self-esteem and confidence. We aim to create a strong partnership between home and the nursery with the greatest consideration given to each individual child’s rights to a caring, safe environment in which they can thrive and begin their education happily, healthily and successfully. The welfare and protection of the child is paramount. We respect and acknowledge that every child and adult matters.


Our Mission Statement about British Values:

In line with Ofsted requirements we also adopt the following statement:

At Charlotte’s Web Pre-School Nursery, we actively promote the universal values of democracy, the rules of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths or beliefs. We believe, for very young children this means learning right from wrong, learning to take turns and share: and challenging negative views and stereotypes. We do not promote views and theories that are contrary to established scientific or historical evidence and explanations.

    • Giving children time to reflect, practice and learn with no sense of failure
